Agency Nursing: Why now?

Well here we are again at the start of a New Year bringing with it the prospect of new beginnings and endless possibilities for the year ahead. Many people use this time to start fresh and turn over a new leaf in many aspects of their life. I’m sure many of you (myself included) have a long list of New Year’s resolutions such as eat healthier or travel to a desired dream destination! If you have also penned ‘career change’ on this list and you are working in the Healthcare Industry, agency work might be the perfect direction for your next career move.

Agency work has a number of benefits, especially if you are embarking on a new career path.

Why Agency Nursing?



You decide when you are available to work as well as the times when you work e.g.  nights, full days or short days. This is particularly useful when you are a working parent or looking to wind down in your career, as you are no longer chained to a strict timetable. You’re in control.


You get to pick exactly where you want to work. It is your prerogative if you don’t want to go to a particular facility type or location, based on your preferences.  For example, if you want to cut your commute, you can choose to only work in facilities in your area.


As you can decide to work in many different sites, valuable experience can be gained in different settings such as Intellectual Disability, Care of the Elderly and Psychiatric as well as Acute. This range of experience is something that you wouldn’t get if you were limited to one hospital or care facility.
